Photography

Beautiful photography has been a hallmark of our publications since the beginning. Check out the photography page for some examples of my work.

The creative process

The creative process takes time. Watch how the 2007 Nexus went from the concept of using the US in our name to a full-blown package of visual and verbal with a two-section concept book with sections describing how and where we are United and how and where we choose to go Solo.

 

Infographics

Infographics are one of the hottest trends in design. With a cleverly built graphic, the design team can convey an article’s worth of content in a single, easily read image. Check out the infographic page for examples of our team’s work.

Website development

As a journalism teacher with three classes at our tiny, rural school of 400 students in grades 6-12, the production of the yearbook was not enough to sustain the program. A news website was launched in Sept. 2015. The traffic has been steady with 53,000 views in the first year. Multimedia have been viewed over 600,000 times.

iOS app production

The il360.news website was ported to an iOS app using the Worona WordPress plugin. The plugin was free, but upgrades were purchased to enhance the interface. Sadly, Worona will stop servicing their plugin in October 2018. In developing the IL 360 app, I worked with the software developer to eliminate some of the bugs in the software. After successfully running the app on simulator software, it was another few weeks of navigating Apple’s certification and approval process before the free app was available in the iTunes store.

JEA Curriculum Work

I am the photojournalism curriculum leader for JEA’s efforts to produce a national scholastic journalism curriculum.

Though my involvement in a myriad of local organizations, I have been tasked with designing logos for different companies around Indian River. Example of my work are on the Logos page.

Collaboration in print

I have been involved in several projects which have been published. Here is some of the work I have been a part of.
